Swatch'd: Metallure by Catrice

Hi Lovelyfaces,

On Saturday I went on an impromptu polish hunt in the city, I wasn't planning on finding anything new, instead I just wanted to pick up a few more Essence polishes that were going to be discontinued soon. While I did get all my Essence polishes, I also found Catrice's new Limited Edition Metallure! I got so excited, at one point I was holding all the 5 polishes in my hands, but then decided not to get all of them and be more selective about my buying. I ended up picking out 2 and then another one after I had walked down the make-up aisle, now I have 3 swatches to share with you!

I really had a hard time deciding if I should take home Metalight or Metallicious... I finally went with Metalight, because the polish looked very smooth in the bottle and I thought it would look nice applied too.

Metalight: 2 coats, not top coat
Yes, it's a beautiful metallic gold-taupe colour and does remind me a lot of Mermaid It from their previous Limited Edition Le Grand Bleu. However, I would say this is a slightly cooler tone. It has a metallic finish and this means it is very unforgiving to ridges and streaks, you'll see EVERYTHING! If you look at my pointer, I bumped that nail a little after applying the first coat and the second coat just made that little mistake pop... It's not my favourite, but I think it would do well for stamping.

Next up is Alluring Red, when I was picking the polishes I was already wearing red polish so I wasn't sure if I needed ANOTHER red polish (obviously, the answer to this is always yes. One can never have too many polishes!) I walked out on this one first, but came back to pick it up before I went to the cashier... And I'm so glad that I did!

Alluring Red: 2 coats, no top coat
Just look at how beautiful this is! It's a hot red with some coral undertones and very fine shimmer. Opaque in two thin layers and the finish is just amazing! Smooth and shimmers like crazy, definitely very alluring.

Last but not least, my favourite from the whole collection! I had already decided on this one before I even saw the actual product, I was completely sold!! This one is called Alluring Pink.

Alluring Pink: 2 coats, no top coat

This is the most adorable bubblegum pink shade I have ever seen! It has very fine pink shimmer, that just makes it twice as cute. It's a crelly base, so it still looks a bit sheer after two coats, but that didn't bother me too much. It dries to a nice shimmery pink and I am simply obsessed with this polish! I can't wait to wear it with some nail art.

The formula, drying time and coverage for all three colours was great! Only downside to this is the much mentioned Catrice brush. I've read about it on a lot of blogs, but never felt that the brushes were that bad, in fact I liked the Catrice brushes! Maybe I was just lucky and always got really good bottles? Anywho, this time I am very disappointed with all three brushes! I don't know if the person who cut them into shape was sleeping, but they are wonky. The middle is extremely long, while the sides are very short, it's more of a triangle than a rounded shape... Application wasn't easy with these, but I'd still recommend the polishes, especially the pink one!

Have you picked up any of the new Metallure polishes? Which one is your favourite?
